Moscow Breaks Heat Record - Radicals Scream Global Warming

Where were these same environmental radicals when Russia was freezing to death? Last year?!?

Temperatures in the capital hit 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) for the first time since 1981, said the Fobos weather forecasting centre, which provides weather data for the country's top media outlets.

Environmental groups including Greenpeace say Russia's heatwave is evidence of global warming, but forecasters with the national weather centre have said it is too early to draw a direct link.

Energy Bill May Be Shelved

Boo hoo hoo. That's what happens when you overspend your capital, Thulsa Doom Obama. I'll be happy to see this sack of crap burn.

Conceding that they can't find enough votes for the legislation, Senate Democrats on Thursday abandoned efforts to put together a comprehensive energy bill that would seek to curb greenhouse gas emissions, delivering a potentially fatal blow to a proposal the party has long touted and President Obama campaigned on.

Greenland Glacier Loses Huge Ice Chunk

Now, before you go jumping to conclusions that this means global warming is real (it isn't), look at the second sentence. This was about 10 years before climatologists, at the time, were declaring "The Coming Ice Age." Yes, we were all going to die then too, but it was because we were going to freeze to death.

These morons have been guessing and getting climate predictions wrong for decades, but apparently we're all too dense to see the pattern of stupidity and fear into which we lead them lead us.

A chunk of ice four times the size of Manhattan has calved from Greenland's Petermann Glacier, scientists announced today.

The last time the Arctic lost such a large chunk of ice was in 1962.

"In the early morning hours of August 5, 2010, an ice island four times the size of Manhattan was born in northern Greenland," said Andreas Muenchow, associate professor of physical ocean science and engineering at the University of Delaware.
